2nd verse (same chords):

What was it brought you out here in the dark
was it your only way of making your mark
did you get rid of all the voices in your head
do you now miss them and the things that they said

( no capo):

G                             Dm           G
   on your own admission you raised up the knife
G                             Dm           f         (C/E)  Dm
and you brought it down ending another man's life
Dm                            Am     G      f
and when is was done you just threw down the blade
Dm                                      G          C
while the red blood spread wider like the anger you made

2nd Chorus (same chords):
I don't want this anger burning in me
It's something from which I've tried so hard to be free
and none of the tears that we cry in sorrow or rage
can make any difference or turn back the page
